The Pottawattamie County Trails Association is a group of residents working to develop a countywide multi-use trails system connecting communities in Pottawattamie County and to the Council Bluffs/Omaha Metro. The first trail to be constructed is along Railroad Highway on the northeast edge of Council Bluffs towards Weston, then Underwood, then Neola.

Planning for the Pottawattamie County trails began in 2012. With help from the National Park Service's Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) program, several public meetings were held throughout Pottawattamie County to determine preferred routes of multi-use (hard- and soft-surface) trails. Based on these meetings, the top priorities were trails from northeast Council Bluffs along Railroad Highway to Underwood and Neola, as well as from Council Bluffs to Crescent and Hitchcock Nature Center. Several grants have been secured and we are still fundraising. Once these trails are established, we anticipate expanding trails to every community and to every county park within Pottawattamie County.
